    Our hearts go out to Don and his family.  Don and Chris were an amazing example of what marriage should look like.  We enjoyed so many hours of playing cards, great meals, and endless laughing with Don and Chris, and we will always cherish the memories of popping over to visit, only to find Don and Chris dancing cheek to cheek with the radio on.  Chris was such a beautiful soul and she will live on always, in our hearts.  She will be missed.
